Tilda With Basket at Friday Sketchers #124
Gosh another happy Friday to everyone!!! I hope your week has been a most delightful one and that you, along with me, are ready for a magnificent weekend!! Fall is in the air and the colors are quickly approaching peak here in the NC mountains so we are preparing ourselves for all of the leaf-lookers who will soon be arriving!!
And today is Friday Sketchers #124 and we are being hosted by the magnificently creative and talented Aud from Norway who has given us a very exciting and fun sketch. Thank you so much, Aud!! I hope you will come over and play along with us this week so that we can see your interpretation of Aud's sketch. A great prize from Simon Says Stamp will be available for some eligible participant. Be sure to read all of the rules on the sidebar so you will be considered!!!
For my DT Sample Card I made an easel card, which for Christmas cards, is ideal since so many people like to display the cards they receive on mantles, tables, etc. The base is Bazzill, the matting is Purple Glitter and Bazzill, and the DP is from the Bo Bunny Winter Joy Collection and a gift to me from the sweet and artistic Suzan. Thank you so much, Sweetie, for this darling line of papers!!! The two major panels were machine stitched. A new Tilda from the A Merry Little Christmas 2010 was stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics, adding a touch of Stickles, and cut out with a Nestie. I think she perhaps has gingerbread cookies in her basket but I changed them to violets with a touch of lavender Stickles. Isn't she just darling? She will be available very soon I am sure over at Magnolia-licious...so keep on the look-out!! I used organza ribbons and bows for the two horizontals and a Doohickey Vintage Tag for the required elements. I then added a snowflake ornament, violets, and lavender rhinestones as well as a Doohickey Swirl to complete the front. The organza ribbons I used are from Really Reasonable Ribbons and are Purple Organza and Jade Organza in 7/8" widths. The bows were made using the Bow-Easy Tool. It is well worth a trip over to Bonnie's shop to see the lovely colors she offers in my very favorite organza ribbons!!!
For the base panel I added another snowflake ornament and made a horizontal stop with a length of Moss Green Leaves and more violets, finally adding more lavender rhinestones to soften the corners.
I hope you like my little creation and will be able to join us at Friday Sketchers this week. We would love to see your card using Aud's sketch!! Please visit each of the Sassy Sketcher Girls' blogs and let them know what you think of their magnificent creations!!!
Aud, Bea, Claudia, Inge, Janneke, Jeanette, Jorunn, Tanja
Thank you sincerely for your visit today and I hope that you will decide to come back and visit me often. May you have a very delightful day and until tomorrow when hopefully we meet again, big hugs for you!!!
